How to know if I have Heated Side Mirrors

How to know if I have Heated Side Mirrors

Postby bsf215 [OP] » Apr 28 2011, 3:24am

I was wondering if someone could tell me HOW I can tell if I have heated mirrors on my 2005 GMC Sierra.
They are power mirrors... I see no indicator lights on the mirrors or dash... I DO have a rear defrost switch that is for the rear window... would that also operate the side mirrors?

Thanks in advance

Most of the time heated mirrors will have a few little wavy lines on the side some where.
The rear defogger switch also turns them on and off with the back glass.

How to know if I have Heated Side Mirrors

My 07 Sierra has a switch. I believe it's right under the climate control knobs. The switch has a side view mirror with wavy lines going through it.

If you have the "auto dimming" drivers side mirror then you have heated mirrors. The heated mirrors are connected with the rear window defrost button.

My last " 2007 2010 " two came with optional heated mirrors and heated back glass. They turned on with same button, don't see any lines on mirrors. I wouldn't know I had them, but looked on truck invoice and shows them. I would just turn them on and check them as poster suggested. Let us know. Hope you got them.
Thank you
